Identification and age of Vertebra

Recommended Posts

Beth de la Garza

This bone was found at Isla Blanca Park on South Padre Island about 2 months ago.  Could you please help me identify what it is and age?  I am a sheller and I am finding some fossils lately and I don't know anything about them, so I really appreciate any help.  Thanks so much.  (I am calling this a caudal because that is the guess my brother made)

I can't really confirm the whale ID, but it is much easier to imagine a whale needing caudals this robust than a bison or mastodon.
